I've admired Babette Harvey's work for years.  I look for it each year at the Oregon Potter's Association's annual showcase.  She has such a distinct beautiful style that always catches my eye.  Definitely check out her website for more incredible work.  She was also featured on Oregon Art Beat awhile back.  You can watch that video...

I first noticed Diane Archer at the Metal Guild show many years ago.  I've always loved the jewelry she makes using maps and stones.  It it's just beautiful stuff.  Now she is also created mixed media pieces.  I came very close to buying this piece above at the Buckman Art Show and Sell.  I came back to look at it several times because it just really spoke to me.  In the end, I walked away...
